Stained glass workshops – The Students work

I have a last workshop this Sunday then its putting on the sunhat for August before I start in September with a Stained glass for Beginners weekend Workshop on 21st and 22nd September.

Autumn is a good time to learn new skills of cutting and shaping glass and creating your own panel to take home. It is still light, with red overtones, beautiful autumn colours coming in to inspire, and the winter to hone those skills!

In the meantime a slide show of work made or in progress by those students attending the Monday evening and Wednesday morning courses and the last stained glass for beginners weekend. Some students come to several courses to make their special stained glass projects realised.
